This course is designed to bring delegates up to speed with the technical, operational, practical and safety-related aspects of using LNG as a source of fuel for ships. It will provide delegates a solid base from which to develop their understanding of this exciting and rapidly-developing sector of the bunker industry. It will look at how methane is stored and burned, fuel and gas systems, safety risks and regulations, bunkering methods, measurement, pricing, and international training requirements.
